Clear Scraps Cross Promo Day 6 Part II

Saturday greetings to you, it's Rhonda here to share a project with you as part of our week long cross promotion with Clear Scraps.

I've used one of our newest collections, Adventure Awaits which was perfect for our recent vacation photos from the beach in Florida.

I decided to use the 7x7 section from the Banners Acrylic 12x12 Page along with a photo that I printed out as an 8x10 and then cropped to fit. I used PowderPuff Chalk Inks on the back side to color coordinate with the photo. The bottom portion I used Latte and the upper portion I used a combination of Royal Blue and Caribbean Blue.

Next, I cut the other section of banners and layered it across the corner after applying some of the blues again on the back.

The page came together so nicely and I love that the focal point is the beach photo.

I used my Canon Pixma IP8720 to print out my 8x10 photo, then I trimmed to fit. You can easily customize the way you print the photo to ensure it will fit.

Clear Scraps Cross Promo Day 6 Part I

Hello and Welcome! It's our final day for our cross promotion with our friends over at Clear Scraps and we will have two blog posts with projects to feature today from June and Rhonda.

First up is June!  Stay tuned for Part II from Rhonda


June here, bringing you more blog-hopping fun with Quick Quotes and Clear Scraps. Hope you have been enjoying all the great inspiration and projects this week.

Clear Scraps products are new to me, but after working with them - WOW - I love them! They make pages come together effortlessly with amazing results! Check it out:

I had forgotten how stunning alcohol inks look on acrylic, like stained glass. It has a mixed media feel without all the mess and drying time.  Check out the before and after coloring:

Although this layout looks time consuming, it really was fast and easy. Here is my process:
  • Color Clear Scraps' XOXO Acrylic Layout frame with 4 colors of Ranger's alcohol inks & blending solution on a felt pad. Just dab it on. (Seriously, this just took a few minutes.)
  • Print 4 photos using Cannon's Selphy CP1200 printer. Trim to fit.
  • Cut a loopy border from Quick Quotes' Mulbury 103 and edge with Royal Blue PowderPuff Ink.
  • Attach Clear Scraps' frame, photos and border to Windsong 103 paper. (I used vellum adhesive to attach the acrylic frame.)
  • Die cut 2 large, 9 medium & 9 small flowers out of Quick Quotes' Mulberry 102 & 103. Edge with Royal Blue & Violet PowderPuff Inks. Layer, glue them together and add gem centers.
  • Adhere flowers and word phrases from Quick Quotes' Mulberry Quotes & Phrases sheet in 3 clusters around the page.
  • Add silver glitter letters to hearts for the title, and add journaling. Done! See, fast and easy.
One of the best things about this process is that you can customize everything to fit your photos. Look at how well the Clear Scraps' frame matches the Quick Quotes Mulberry papers and the photos!

Clear Scraps Cross Promo Day 5!

Good morning! Alicia here today sharing my Quick Quotes and Clear Scraps project. I used several PowderPuff Chalking Inks to color a Clear Scraps 12x12 acrylic layout. I sealed the color with a spray sealant. I cut my photos to fit the frames and added embellishments.

I die cut some Whistlin' Dixie 107 paper for the sun. I used white card stock for the foliage and inked it up with the same green PowderPuff Chalking Inks I used on the palm trees.
I cut several pieces from Adventure Awaits 500 and inked the edges with more Powderpuff Chalking Inks.

Clear Scraps Cross Promo Day 4!

Greetings and welcome to day four of our cross promotion with Clear Scraps! We have a special treat today, two designers on the blog to share their projects with you, Kathi and LeeAnn.


Kathi here to share with you my design for the Clear Scraps blog hop, I enjoyed working with the clear scraps chipboard. I choose the heart. For the love the sea where my adventure started in Florida boarding the Royal Caribbean setting sail for the beautiful Caribbean.

We had a great party abroad the ship, photo on the left, my roommate is pictured on the right. Yumi is from Japan. With the chipboard heart I used two of the  2017 PowderPuff Chalking Inks, Bora Bora and Terra Cotta.


Close up of the quotes and phases overlaid with the twine netting. The frame was colored with Bora Bora PowderPuff Chalk Ink.

I used a die cut anchor cut from a scrap of the Adventure Awaits patterned paper cascading from the Petaloo flowers and leaves. Bora Bora PowderPuff Chalk Ink distresses the anchor and the seahorse die cut.

A die cut octopus is towering over the small sea shells and Petaloo flowers. The octopus was distressed with Terra Cotta PowderPuff Chalk Ink.

Greetings crafty friends. LeeAnn here to share with you my project for today featuring Clear Scraps 12x12 Circle Printer Tray Frame along with Quick Quotes papers. Let me say as soon as I saw this in the box, I knew exactly what photos I was using.
Circle Printer Tray Frame
Just a few days before my project box arrived, my daughter took my little grandson to the local Day Out with Thomas and the Friendship Tour. Little man LOVES Thomas, almost as much as he loves monster trucks, and he looked so happy that day.

It was really hard to pick which photos to use, but with the help of my Selphy CP1200 printer, I was able to print not only 4x6 photos but also a 2x3 sticker for the center rectangle.

1. Lay the bottom layer out on your workspace.

 2. I then added double stick tape to the bottom layer.

 3. I removed the protector off the double stick tape and smoothed out my paper from the Adventure Awaits Paper Pack.

I then put the rest of the frame together, which was 2 chipboard frame layers, 1 acrylic layer and one more chipboard frame layer on top, carefully making sure they all lined up.

For my first layer, I used PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Lipstick to build the color Red. I didn't get it quite as vibrant as I wanted, so I decided to experiment.

I covered the top layer with a good smattering of Gesso. Once fully dry I covered with Lipstick PowderPuff Chalk Ink again. When that was dry, I used Beacon 3-in-1 Glue to affix all layers together.

I can't wait to see this in my grandson's room. I will be purchasing some of these frames in the future from Clear Scraps, as they are fun and quite easy to work with!

Clear Scraps Cross Promo Day 3!

Hello and welcome! Susie here today to share a home dec piece I created by pairing the Adventure Awaits Collection from Quick Quotes with some great products from our cross promotion partner, Clear Scraps!

I had a wonderful vacation with my husband last year and when I saw the new beach-themed Adventure Awaits Collection I knew I was ready to scrap the trip!   I like to have my happiest memories up on the walls so I can see them - they make me smile!

When I opened my box from Clear Scraps I was very happy to see this 12x12 Printer Tray Frame...


...and this Mini Heart Shaker Frame.

Each of them come with multiple pieces:  (1) chipboard back, (3) chipboard cutouts, and (1) acrylic divider. I started with the mini shaker frame. Using the heart shape as a pattern I trimmed out a picture of my husband and I and adhered it to the chipboard back.

I used Aqua PowderPuff Chalking Ink on one of the chipboard cutouts, sprinkled on clear embossing powder and applied heat to set.  Once it was assembled I set it aside and worked on the printer tray frame.

I look at each opening as a mini scrapbook page:

  • I sorted through the Adventure Awaits Collection and chose a variety of patterned papers for the backgrounds.  
  • I trimmed out the pieces I liked and then adhered them to the back of one of the chipboard frame cutouts so that the parts that I wanted showed through the openings.  
  • I used decorative binder clips to attach the frame to the chipboard back 
  • Finally, I just started playing with pictures and embellishments! Here are close ups of each of the openings:

When I was done I adhered the heart shaped mini frame to the front and hung my vacation printer tray up on the wall!  I still have (2) chipboard cutouts and (1) acrylic divider from each product.  Looks like I have at least one more project in my future! And now I want to share a little excitement!  For years I have been printing my scrapbooking pictures on my little Canon Selphy and I have loved the quality and convenience. As a member of the Quick Quotes Design Team I recently received a lovely new papercrafting tool - the Canon PIXMA TS6020!  I will be sharing more about this scanner/printer combo in the future but I wanted you to know I used it to print pictures for today's project - from my phone! Without any help from my husband!  Woohoo!

Please take a moment to stop on over to the Clear Scraps Blog today to check out Nancy's project! Be sure to say hello and let them know that Quick Quotes sent you over!

Using the gorgeous Printer's Tray by Clear Scraps along with some gorgeous papers and ink from Quick Quotes, a celebration of Spring has begun. The Owl Shaker by Clear Scraps is watching over our sparse, but beautiful flowers.

The Owl Shaker is filled with buttons and silk flowers. The frame of the Owl is covered with paper from the Windsong Collection and shaded with Baby Blue PowderPuff Chalk Ink by Quick Quotes. A vintage seed pack was tucked in behind the Owl.

"All good things are wild and free" love the quote. So perfect for this project. Flowers fit in that category for sure.

The silk flower petals, buttons and sequins securely tucked away the shake away.

Clear Scraps Cross Promo Day 1!

Monday greetings to you! We are excited to collaborate with our friends at Clear Scraps this week to bring you all kinds of fun inspiration!


Hello Crafty friends, Martha Lucia here to celebrate the first day of our cross promotion between two fabulous companies: Quick Quotes and Clear Scraps!

To make this very special, I decided to make a scrapbook page...yes, no cards today! And I used an Acrylic Shape to create my layout. Take a look at my project:

When you have the right elements, it is very easy to develop the creative work, and making this page was very easy and fun!

I chose the 12x12 layout Mom from Clear Scraps and the Honeycomb 103 Quick Quotes paper as basic elements to create my page. The 12x12 layout Mom comes in Acrylic shape and I only had to remove the film on both sides and ink it with different colors of PowderPuff Chalk Ink.


For the borders of the square frames I used my PowderPuff Chalk Ink in Mahogany. For the flourish I used Desert Sun, for the M letters I used Jade , for the heart I used Lipstick and for the flowers I used Royal Blue and Violet. On the majority of the parts I applied the inks directly with the ink pad but in other parts I used a sponge to avoid the contamination of the colors of ink. After the ink dries well, it stays permanent over the acrylic.
I chose the Honeycomb 103 as the base for my page because the colors are enhanced over the clear background, but to create a contrast I made a mat for some of the spaces that the layout has. I printed all the photos included on my layout using the Canon PIXMA TS 9020. This is fabulous too, because I can select and arrange my photos from my phone or Social Media and print directly on it.
For the big space I used a photo of my mother and I, and I made a mat for this with two different papers from the Mulberry Collection. For the first mat of the photo I inked the borders with Desert Sun PowderPuff Chalk Ink before pasting it back to the photo. The background mat has the same size of the Clear Scrap Mom layout.

To enhance the details of the Clear Scrap 12x12 layout Mom, I stamped some flowers over Mulberry Collection paper using the same colors of PowderPuff Chalk Inks that I used to give color to the acrylic layout, and I decorated some parts with Novu Crystal Drops.

If you are wondering how I pasted the Mom layout over the Honeycomb 103 paper, let me tell you that this step was very easy. I used glue dots in some parts and I covered the dots with the stamped images and the photos and mats help me to secure the center on squares.

Thank you for visiting us today and be sure to stop back to visit us this week because we will posting different types of projects and inspiration showing the versatility of these two companies, Quick Quotes Scrapbook and Clear Scraps!

April Club Q with Rhonda

Hi crafty friends, it's Rhonda here to share with you a page that I designed with pieces from the April Club Q kits.

Our family recently went on a spring break trip to Florida to visit some family as well as visit Disneyworld. This was the first trip for our boys and it was so much fun to see their excitement. I had a quick family photo that I thought was a pretty good representation of the trip that I wanted to capture.

Quick Quotes Scrapbook Page featuring pieces from April 2017 Club Q Kit designed by Rhonda Van Ginkel

For this page, I had some purple and blue in my photo so it was a good match for the kits! I loved the cut apart alpha's and the decorative strips I cut apart and pieced together to make my own focal point.  I love how the kits have pre-cut pieces that make it so easy to mix things up and create quickly!

I also used several of the new 2017 PowderPuff Chalk Ink colors to customize my doily so it matched the page. You will find Violet, Baby Blue, Royal Blue and Warm Gray blended on the white doily.

The cut aparts from Mulberry 500 had the perfect sentiments for this page and the finishing touch was a few silver gems on the bottom left corner. A few date stamps along the bottom using Warm Gray helped mark the timing for the photo.

It's Spring with June!

Hello and welcome! It's June here to host the blog today.

I have a bright and fun layout for you today! I used Quick Quotes Anchors Aweigh paper collection, and even though this collection is sea-themed, it was easy to adapt it into a spring theme using flower punches!

Designer Tip: You can adapt most themed papers into something else by using punches. You are not limited to just flowers, you can use hearts, stars, clouds, etc. You can also use diecuts or an electronic cutting machine (such as a Cricut) instead of punches, too.

The background paper is Windsong 103. Windsong papers are mostly light with subtle designs and make a great alternative to plain white cardstock for backgrounds. The photos were printed with my new Cannon Selphy CP1200. (I still can't believe I can go from having an idea, to photographing it, to having the prints on a page in just minutes!)

You know how much I love my PowderPuff Chalking Inks, and I couldn't resist using them all over this page. After punching out the borders, flowers and leaves, I edge them with Rose Petal, Limeade, Buttercup and Sky Blue PowderPuff Chalk Inks and a blending tool. I then used the same colors to add splatters to the background and to stamp "spring" for a colorful title.

I was inspired by Alicia's fun Flower Challenge for April here at Quick Quotes. If you would like to join in follow the link here.
